Is It Time To Put The Run On Your Children?

Date: November 9, 2017 | Time: 2:55am

kid-974181_1920.jpgIt's staggering that more than 60 percent of the population is overweight or obese in the United States and many European countries. This makes it essential for scientists and researchers to determine how best to manage this health problem, especially in children. An interesting new study out of the U.K. indicates that children who participate in just 15 minutes of moderate exercise daily are 50 percent less likely to be obese as compared with inactive children. Researchers also commented that higher intensity type physical activity could be more important than the total amount of physical activity. Researchers were surprised at how such a small amount of activity per day could have such significant results.

Eat A Lot More Vegetables, Really

Date: October 24, 2017 | Time: 9:54pm

salad-791891_1920.jpgGovernment researchers have just announced that Americans are far from consuming adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables which in turn increases their odds of acquiring heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's Disease as well as numerous other serious health conditions. These findings come from a health and eating habits survey conducted in 2005 of more than 300,000 Americans, called the 2005 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. According to the survey, less than one third of adults consumed at least five daily servings of fruits and vegetables - the government's suggested daily consumption of fruits and vegetables in 2005. New government guidelines have now increased the suggested daily consumption to three to five servings of fruit and four to eight servings of vegetables daily.

Pregnant Women's Musculoskeletal Pains Left Untreated

Date: October 11, 2017 | Time: 6:52pm

pregnant-1245703_1920.jpgIt's unfortunate that although many musculoskeletal pains arise during pregnancy, most go untreated, especially in underserved communities. According to a recent study from the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, of the 599 predominantly low-socioeconomic pregnant women surveyed, 67 percent reported musculoskeletal pain with 21 percent reporting their pain intensity as severe. Surprisingly, 80 percent of pregnant women experiencing pain slept less than 4 hours per night and 75 percent of these women took pain medications. Most disappointing, 85 percent of the women felt they had not been offered treatment for their musculoskeletal disorders. Chiropractors are highly skilled in providing care for musculoskeletal pains, including those that arise during pregnancy. If you or another is suffering from pregnancy-related musculoskeletal pains or any type of musculoskeletal pain, please consider scheduling an appointment with a musculoskeletal expert today, your local chiropractor.

Higher-Intensity Workouts More Effective

Date: September 26, 2017 | Time: 7:51pm

running-573762_1920.jpgIn terms of promoting overall fitness, German researchers have found moderate to high-intensity endurance exercise significantly more beneficial than low-intensity exercise. While low-intensity exercise is appropriate for those with heart conditions or other disabilities/conditions that prevent higher intensity exercise, researchers stated that for healthy adults, intense endurance exercise is superior. In order to reap the benefits of endurance exercise, researchers recommended that healthy individuals with no heart problems aim for a heart rate of at least 80 percent of their maximum heart rate. To determine your approximate maximum heart rate for those 20 years of age and older, simply subtract 20 from your current age, then subtract the resulting number from 200. Thus, a 35-year old would have a maximum heart rate of 185 beats per minute; 35 minus 20 equals 15 and 200 minus 15 equals 185. Therefore, the target exercising heart rate for this individual would be 148 beats per minute; 80 percent of 185.

Multivitamin Health Alert

Date: September 12, 2017 | Time: 4:50am

diet-pills-1328804_1920.jpgThink all multivitamins are created equal? If so, read on. Not only could you be throwing away money by not receiving what is listed on the label, you could be consuming something that is potentially toxic to your body. Results from ConsumerLab.com indicates more than half of 21 multivitamins they tested had too little or too much of certain ingredients listed on the label and many had unacceptably high levels of the toxic heavy metal lead. ConsumerLab.com conducts independent tests to help consumers and healthcare professionals evaluate health, wellness and nutrition products. According to their results, out of the 21 products tested, only 10 had accurate amounts of stated ingredients as well as other quality standards. Some of their other findings included - one women's multivitamin contained more than 10 times the lead allowed without a label stating so (against current California law), one children's vitamin contained more than double the vitamin A (potentially toxic to children under the age of 9) and some products weren't likely to break up in one's digestive tract and instead, simply pass completely through without sufficient absorption. So when purchasing vitamins, it's a good idea to purchase a quality product from a reputable company to ensure you're not only getting the health benefits you paid for, but also, so you're not consuming a product that is potentially toxic.

Healthy Meals - Tips for Making Them Affordable

Date: September 7, 2017 | Time: 10:25am

Eating good, healthy meals doesn't have to be the expensive, time-consuming ordeal many people think it is. In fact, eating healthy can often times be just as cost effective and efficient as eating packaged or semi-prepared meals IF you follow a few simple steps.

  1. Healthy mealsBuy In Bulk - when shopping for your food, anytime you can purchase larger quantities you'll save money.
  2. Don't Forget The Freezer - make extra and freeze it for a later date. This is a GREAT way to not only save money, but time as well!
  3. Embrace the Season - not only does eating food that is in season, choosing locally grown food usually means better taste and quite often a cheaper price.
  4. Eat It All - don't let anything go to waste! For example, if you have a whole chicken one night, make chicken stock that can be used as a later date.

Remember, eating healthy doesn't have to be a burden, financially or otherwise. Just be wise with how you buy and prepare your food and you'll enjoy healthier, more flavorful and many times, more efficient meals.

Exercise Assists In Preventing Fat Storage

Date: August 31, 2017 | Time: 3:48am

belly-2354_1920.jpgA new study has found that regular exercise appears to protect the body from depositing fat when a person increases their short-term fat consumption. In the study, researchers took a group of ten sedentary women and had them exercise at three different levels while altering their diet consisting of 30 percent calories from fat to 50 percent calories from fat. They found the more the women exercised, the faster they were able to burn the fat calories. In other words, for those who exercise, occasional indulgences in high fatty meals appear to be well tolerated. For those not exercising, even occasional fatty indulgences can result in an almost immediate storage to fat.

You're Never Too Old or Too Overweight To Exercise

Date: August 15, 2017 | Time: 6:47am

fitness-1916724_1920Many studies have been conducted on young and middle aged adults showing the substantial benefits of dietary modifications and exercise addition to one's lifestyle. Unfortunately, far fewer studies exist for the elderly. Now, results from a new study indicate these benefits are also significant in the elderly. In a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 27 sedentary obese men and women aged 65 were randomly assigned to a diet and exercise program. Those elderly subjects who were assigned to the diet and exercise program significantly lowered their bodyweight, blood pressure, blood sugar and bad blood triglycerides. More specifically, those elderly who were assigned to the diet and exercise program lost an average of 18 pounds and experienced an 59 percent decrease in metabolic syndrome (a collection of conditions that increase an individual's risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease) as compared to the control group who did not participate in the diet and exercise program.
